Ron Howard to Take On Stephen King’s The Dark Tower Series Not too long ago, it was looking like J.J. Abrams and and Damon Lindelof were going to be bringing Stephen King’s epic The Dark Tower series to the big screen once Lost had finally wrapped up, but for some reason last year they changed their mind and decided that it was simply too difficult to adapt. They have since relinquished the rights back to Stephen King, which is clearly the noble thing to do when you don’t believe you can do a particular work justice. The only problem with deciding that something is too difficult to adapt and bowing out gracefully is that there is always some other jobber out there who doesn’t give a shit and thinks it can make a ton of money anyway. Someone like… Ron Howard.

As you can tell in the above image, the production seems to be sticking close to the cartoon.   For more pictures and the synopsis, hit the jump.

Wow, Gargamal looks really well. I remember the Smurfs from when I was a kid and I was having a difficult time picturing the characters in live action, I’m still trying to imagine them blue 😉 but lets see how things turn out. What do you think of this? Are you a smurfs fan?
